Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

Naxos are not always lucky with their piano recordings, but the two CDs that Balázs Szokolay has recorded are very good. Szokolay’s playing is not as consistently subtle in colouring or as poetic in feeling as that of Leif Ove Andsnes, but it is pretty idiomatic. However, at super-bargain price it is without doubt very good value indeed, and although the balance is very slightly close, it is not oppressively so. Both CDs give pleasure.
